I Have been making custom furniture, carvings, and other fine wood craft for many years. My furniture appeared in
the Providence Fine Furnishings & Fine Craft show in October of 2011. I had lots of very nice compliments and several sales but the purpose of the show, for me, was more like an advertising adventure. I also show my work and can be reached through Custom Made.
My favorite styles are from the Arts & Crafts movement. Of course I like Stickley and the Prairie School, but
my favorite designers are the Greene brothers and Limbert. I'm not limited to producing work in the style of the Arts & Crafts period. I have made furniture in the Colonial and Federal styles and love to work with clients who have their own ideas. As a matter of fact, planning the project with the client is what really gets my propeller spinning.
I also do a bit of carving and making personal items such as hand mirrors and jewelry boxes. I'm also a sometime luthier specializing in wooden acoustic resonator guitars.
You can see a good deal of my work at Forbidden Fruit Designs and Forbidden Fruit Guitars, two other companies I'm growing.
